Mary Strange was born 1834 in Studley in Warwickshire, father Thomas born 1815 Wiltshire, she married  Henry Summerell at St Mary The Virgin Cardiff on 1/11/1858 and she apparently died on 15/10/1899.  Henry died in 1887. My Grandmother (now deceased)  mentioned she was sent to live with her grandmother in Portishead after being told her father had died, she would have been 10yrs old at the time or possibly younger. She was given a choice > either stay with her mother or go to her uncle, but in the end she was sent to her grandmother's.  She did not return to Cardiff until she was about 18 - 21 years old.  I  know Nailsea is not too far from Portishead.


Ann Menzies {barmenz[at]bigpond[dot]net[dot]au> asked about John Shaw Strange born c1792 and was tried at the Old Bailey for High Treason and transported to Australia for life 1820 for his part in the Cato Street Conspiracy.

Heather Olsen: I have a reference that indicates there was a wife and two children who remained in England, but I have never been able to trace what became of them.

Ann: Rumour has it that they were not married and that the children were registered under her name only. Do you know her full name it's Mary something. A request was sent for a free passage for her and the children to Australia but I have no proof of a refusal or otherwise. He states his place of birth on all official documents as Warwickshire. He married in Australia in 1829 and produced 10 little Strange's.

Heather: On Mary, all I really have is the text of a letter the prisoners' wives signed, in which Mary Strange signs on behalf of herself and two children. I certainly don't have a marriage record for them, but they might have been married, and she either remarried, or simply didn't want to go to Australia. The story that they weren't married might have been a way to make what would have essentially been a bigamous second marriage seem more legitimate. Or maybe they weren't married. Yes, John was born in Warwickshire. I descend from his first cousin. I have the family back several generations.
